Registered Staff Hours
This facility's grades were horrible across the board. We especially wanted to draw your attention to its inspection grade where it received an F. This isn't a good sign for its inspection reports. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 12 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Short-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. In determining these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a grade in this range for this area, we weren't shocked to discover that this nursing home was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we looked at. The facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 60.606064 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The last area we graded was nursing. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in that area. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
